Quick Pick: Naked Colour Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner

We've long been fans of Naked here at LBR - their SLS, silicone, paraben and other nasty things free products are reasonably priced, easy to find in Boots stores, and work just as well as their chemical laden cousins.

I received their Colour Protecting shampoo and conditioner ages ago, and they've worked their way into my regular routine.  The shampoo is SLS free and manages to clean the hair brilliantly without leaving it feeling squeaky clean or stripped, and the silicone free conditioner is moisturising without being heavy.  After use, my hair is left light and fresh, soft and shiny.

Whilst I'm not convinced that this combo particularly reduces colour fading, I do notice less colour bleeding off my hair when I use it compared to a shampoo containing SLS.  I also really love the scent of the shampoo - where the conditioner is reasonably mild smelling, the shampoo has a rich cinnamon edge to it which is both unusual and very warming.

Find them online and in store at Boots (shampoo £4.19 and conditioner £4.19) or slightly cheaper at Naked's website (shampoo £3.98 and conditioner £3.98).

  1. Have you heard of any free from gunk shampoos that are good for (for want of a better explaination) 'jewish' type hair. (very thick, dry slightly curly, always frizzy) Every time I try to use one of those shampoo and conditioners my hair goes squeaky and dry and starts tangling as I wash it.

    1. Have you heard of the CG method, where you don't actually use shampoo at all, but wash your hair with a silicone free conditioner? My hair felt amazing when I tried it, and I can only imagine that it'd work even better on very thick, dry, frizzy hair.

      Otherwise, if you have a look at the British Curlies site (, they have a store selling many products for coarse/curly hair which are nasty-ingredient free :)

    2. Thanks that sounds great I will give that a go.
